The following is a Press Release from the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office:

On October 16, Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office deputies were dispatched to a local mobile home complex regarding a report of a burglary that had occurred the previous day.

When deputies arrived, they spoke with the victim who advised them his home was burglarized and several items were stolen, including a 16 gauge shotgun, a DVD player, a collectors gold coin, frozen meats, shotgun shells, and a shotgun cleaning kit.

After further investigation, detectives arrested Richard W. Barras, 24, of Lake Charles, in connection with the burglary.  When questioned by detectives, Barras confirmed he had busted out a window of the victim's mobile home using a brick, and had stolen the items from inside.  During a search of Barras' home, detectives recovered the stolen shotgun and all other items reported stolen. 

He was booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center and charged with simple burglary; criminal damage to property; theft of a firearm; and theft over $1,500. 

Judge Ron Ware set his bond at $18,000.

CPSO Detective Kerrick Gabrial is the lead investigator on this case.
